Something I've always wondered is why people go back to their ex's. If it didn't work out the first time then why should it the next? Is it an act of desperation or merely selective amnesia? If you or they weren't good enough the first time around, what makes one think they're good enough now?... Continue Reading →
Come one, come all! Come see the spectacle that is K, the Forgotten! A sad girl who you won't feel for as she slips from my/our minds. When one forgets, does that allow to begin anew? Perhaps when one forgets themselves... Does forgetting create an absence of the mind, or is it data overwritten? I'm... Continue Reading →
You have somebody's full attention! Now, let us shed our ideas of extraversion and introversion and focus on the attention itself. How would you want to be considered in their eyes? Interesting, Intriguing, or Entertaining? Is there is a difference? (Come on, it's me. IMO of course there is.) I've always wanted to be interesting,... Continue Reading →
If video killed the radio star, now I wonder which movie star will shine a spotlight on your life... Ladies and gentlemen of poignant (or pointless) overthinking! KM is back (tell your friends) and I'm riding on a decepticon. See this feather in my cap? It's to tickle your juicy brains into seeing the story... Continue Reading →
Splitting hairs in definitions, another J.K. babbling semantic stream. J and I were talking about addiction, and the difference between an addict and a junkie. The difference we came up with was that an addict's addiction doesn't interfere with their ability to function within society, whereas a junkie's addiction does. Bear in mind that addictions...

Is self-care selfish? Can taking advantage of one's empathic nature lead them towards developing antipathy, apathy and then perhaps psychopathy?
"It takes a great deal of courage to stand up to one's enemies, and just as much to stand up to one's friends." -Dumbledore.
The beginning of an idea of “art as the realm of the gods.”
Where gods are archetypal representations for inherent and universal human experiences and characteristics.
You have Mario Savioni to thank for the publication of this blog post. A conversation (comment thread) we had reminded me about this half formed thingy I started writing last year… It is part of my personal philosophy of aesthetics. The nature of art, and how it is representative of the presence of the divine within humanity.
The passive form invites the active gaze. The masculine gaze is attracted to the subjective beauty. As “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, the voyeur may or may not be aware of the specific form which stimulated visual pleasure – if it is the light, the colour, or the form unto which the light befalls.
The gods and goddesses of mythology are real – that is, they are archetypal representations of aspects within all of us. They try to ‘speak to us’ but we don’t know how to understand their messages…

Narratology as allegory for the human condition.
Programming my bear arms to wave to right frequency.
I make a ton of metaphors, jokes and overall references to the physical body. Like skin, hair, eyes, brain, genitals, flesh, bone, muscle, sinew, bodily fluids or excretions, lips, tongue, teeth, fingers. Sphincters!
I do so because I have a physical body and (unless I am grossly mistaken) I believe it’s something every person can agree with have in common. Excellent.
We all have material, physical form. Check.
Therefore, we are also surely going to have the following in common, too:
- The need to eat food. Calories, nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
- We need to drink water to maintain hydration for optimum functioning. Lubricate the joints and mechanisms of your rusty, busty cage.
- We need to sleep. Rest, heal, recharge. Dreaming is a perk, remembering them is not a guarantee.
- You wear some form of clothing.
- You maintain some level of hygiene.

Ok, I want you to think totally outside of the box - or inside of the box if you don't like what's outside the box. This is a glimpse into the sort of conversations my husband and I have at times. If you could have anything - any thing - at all as a possession/pet,... Continue Reading →
Hello Pointless Overthinkers. It's me, Kalliope! Did you miss me? Hmm, don't answer that, I'd rather you save your answers for the following morsels of munchable musings... you know they're a real treat, coming from the chief muse herself. LOL I want to you to define 'growing up.' Is it just submitting your inner self... Continue Reading →
Ladies and Gentlemen! I stand before you here in this P.O. Amphitheatre to posit a scenario for us to ponder. We are a social species that (for the most part) behaves in accordance with a set of unspoken rules and expectations. I present before you a hypothetical situation that requires your judgement. I encourage you... Continue Reading →
14 August, 2018. I am a lot of things. Mostly contradictory and complex. It is both a delight and a curse to be me. How I feel about existence really depends on a lot of things that are all temporary and transient. I have a lot of ideas and I struggle to pin down anything […]... Continue Reading →
11th December, 2018. 4:33 am. DM posted a video about making mistakes. The title alone totally TRIGGERED my memory about writing a post about this topic. So I dug around my personal blog archives and dredged this up for you all to bear witness: Why I am the soi-disant EXPERT OF EVERYTHING! Because I am... Continue Reading →
Looking after yourself is not selfish or self-indulgent ~ it is a necessity! In our busy day-to-day lives we might not always take the time to check in with our Self. So please, I would like you to make yourself a comforting hot drink in your favourite mug, get comfortable, and spend an hour or... Continue Reading →
It is 6:30pm, 29th November 2018. Allow me to introduce myself for this is my first blog post to this amphitheatre of cerebral constellations. You may know me from my own website Modern Mystic Mother from stuff and places and things. Or you may have seen my RAH-TA-TA-DA-BLAH-ZAH words (that sometimes make coherent sentences..?) in the...
